Isabelle McNally

Isabelle has the most beautiful face, not to mention I love her style. I'd love to see her featured in artworks by the likes of Kelly Smith or Kelly Thompson. 





Do you guys have any people you'd love to see drawn or painted? Who?

Ten Dollar Drawings



Ten Dollar Drawings is a blog by Alicia Lynn Carrier- a freelance photographer and fine artist.

All you have to do is email her at land_camera_land_camera@yahoo.com and tell her what to draw for you and she'll create something beautiful on a brown paper bag, for only $10.

I thought it was a great idea! Here's some of my favourites:









I love love love the owl one.

Pretty neat huh?

The Photographic Dictionary

This is absolute genius! The Photographic Dictionary is a website that works like a normal dictionary, but that features some stunning images by our favourite photographers. I think it's such a great idea, i've had fun browsing.

Here are a few of my favourite finds:

Grow down and open

My dear Rosie Posie has tagged me and i'm quite excited do to this one because it seems fun!
It's called the "Show your Heart" tag and the rules are...
With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in:
1 picture
1 poem
1 song or piece of music
1 phrase or quote
1 item of clothing
1 place
[And just for fun-] 1 Disney princess!
I don't know how exciting my responses will be but here i go:



Picture:

I just got married in November, this is me and my hubby on the day. I tried to find some other kind of creative picture that sums me up, but really, this was the happiest day of my life and most of who i am is defined by being his wife

Song:

Joanna Newsom is a harp playing beauty, check her out.

Phrase or quote:

"Love others as much as you love yourself"- Matthew 22.39.
I want to be moved by love in everything to do. Putting others before yourself and doing things for those in need is the most amazing thing you can do with your time, in my opinion.

Item of clothing:


This outift by Lauren from Lookbook (see more here) pretty much sums up my style. Belted high waisted skirts, a pretty top, gold jewellery and long hair is pretty much me from day to day.

Place:



AFRICA! More than anything else in this post, this describes me. And it goes with my desire to be moved by love. And to be authentic in your desire to love people, you have to move on it because words alone mean nothing. My heart is to work and live in Africa. It feels like i'm already there sometimes.

Disney Princess:


And lastly one of my favourite movies and books growing up was Alice in Wonderland. I don't necessarily think i'm much like her, i'm probably a lot less adventurous but she was a childhood favourite that i've held onto.

Now i'd like to see Daydream Lily's answers for these!

Lost in another world

I've said it before and it's so true. There are some photographers that make me wish wish wish that i had a camera (or two) and a few spoonfuls of talent.

Mike Schwartz photography makes me dream.











Oh and a few posts ago i asked who your favourites actors and actresses are. Seems like there's too much talent out there for us to be able to agree on just a few, but Johnny Depp was mentioned more than any other.

I just watched Finding Neverland again the other day and it reminded me how fantastic he is. I think i'm right, but isn't he filming Alice in Wonderland at the moment? I am sure i heard he is playing the Mad Hatter. That will be amazing.

Edit: Speaking of talented individuals who make your heart ache to have what they have, please head over to here to give your eyes a feast and hopefully inspire some creativity in you!
